Bamboo is for You

Pros

I have really enjoyed using BambooHR, since our company introduced the platform to us over a year ago. It has many great features, with one being the tracking of your fellow employees work anniversary date. This tracker has helped increase interdepartmental communication throughout the company, as we all now have the ability to wish somebody we may or may not talk to regularly, a congratulations on a memorable day for them within the company.

Cons

Though there is a way for you to provide feedback on your peers, there is no way for providing feedback on your direct supervisor / manager. Bi-directional feedback is very important, as managers need to receive feedback on their performance from their directs, in order to learn on areas in which they can also improve on their managerial skills.

Outstanding as well as Cloud-based HR software.

Overall I would say BambooHR is supporting almost every aspect of HR management. I would say it has streamlined numerous cumbersome processes. I love all the functions of this software.

Pros

BambooHR is the most simple as well user friendly software. It helps us a lot to store and report employee's information. It also let employees in visualizing their personal information and benefit. Its sleek designs are providing much benefit to the companies. Its fascinating features of Applicant Tracking System and On & Off boarding checklists is making this product look even more interesting.

Cons

Although BambooHR software is full of benefits but one of the downsides is that it is difficult to customize. With the rapid advancement I hope its team will overcome this issue and bring improvements in it as soon as possible.

For me, BambooHR is the number one software in recruitment.

This software can also be used to make employee payments more securely. In general, good experience with BambooHR can be recommended without any problem, we manage all the staff from one place.

Pros

BambooHR does a crawling of applicants, always bringing the best staff to our company, we publish the vacancy we have and easily we arrange interviews with the best options. We can also pause the publication to resume it whenever we want.

Cons

I do not have a counter for BambooHR, it is an excellent software, easy to use and with great Human Resources tools.

Nice HR app

Pros

We just switched to BambooHR a couple of months ago, and I noticed a huge difference between this HR app and the one we used before. BambooHR is user-friendly, and you don't need any special trainings to be able to use it.

Cons

it's not super complex in terms of features, and I'd really appreciate having more custom filters for HR calendar .

Convenient and Efficient People Management

BambooHR saves time and makes it simple for everyone to get the HR related stuff done quickly so they can focus on their actual jobs. The app for both iOS and Android means most functions can also be done on the go. This software is a must have for companies of all sizes.

Pros

After struggling with Excel sheets, time logs, and software reminiscent of Access 97 databases, BambooHR is a dream for people management. With a clean, responsive interface and built-in tutorials, users and administrators can jump in and get up to speed quickly. The marketplace also has tons of integrations for just about every function you can think of. The most convenient feature is how Bamboo streamlines the orientation of new employees. With configurable tasks and documents, Bamboo can track progress and keep signed records eliminating the need for a lot of printing and physical file storage.

Cons

The setting options are both a blessing and a curse. If not configured carefully, you can potentially expose sensitive data to those who shouldn’t have it. Not everyone needs to know how much vacation time the CEO has left.

It's been nice and very convenient when connecting with other employee's. I also love the visibility when it comes to my time schedule.

Pros

I like the convenience of having it on an app, and I appreciate the amount that I can do on bamboo hr.

Cons

I wish that I could access all of bamboo hr on the app on my phone. I have gone in to edit my own personal account and I have to use a computer.

Love that everything is in one digital place

Pros

Bamboo HR is so easy to use, and it's great to have all your leave requests and everything else staff related all in one place. I love that you can easily see who is out of the office on any given day.

Cons

I would like there to be a differentiation when people are out of the office on a work from home day compared to a vacation/sick day.

Bamboo HR Review

I like it but onboarding is a tad expensive.

Pros

Bamboo HR has a very modern and sleek look/feel to it which I highly recommend to organizations which want that kind of ambiance from themselves.

Cons

It has a multitude of features which can come off a bit cumbersome for those employees who prefer simplicity.

Easy All-In-One HR Solution

Pros

This is one of the most fluid and easy to navigate HR solutions that I've ever used. It's super simple to see what is going on with the business, who is in and who is out, your paycheck, your benefits; everything is just under one roof which is very convenient.

Cons

It seems like it would work best for smaller teams. I'm not sure how well it would work for larger companies.
